These medallions are a sample of what I've been doing during this
winter to keep me from going stir crazy....
Anyway, getting back to my unfinished post from last night.
Bob will not be going to Phoenix this year. I need to decide when I am going...(If at all)
Perhaps I might use the money and apply it towards Art Unraveled this summer or Art and Soul this spring. Decisions, Decisions!!!!!
Everytime I look outside, my trip this winter to a warmer (snow free) climate becomes more inviting.
I wish I could do it all! Maybe I'll win the lottery.....


I never got a chance to finish the last blog. Anyway, disregard the last part about Bob not going to Phoenix , and I'll finish tomorrow when I'm not so sleepy.


It's not even Dec. 21, and I'm sick of this climate. Each year my dislike for winter grows stronger.

It seems as if my entire life is revolving around this crappy weather.

Since I really hate to drive while it's snowing, I've been sticking around the house alot. Cabin fever is setting in. We're having another snow and ice storm at the moment. I 've been timing my outings between storms. I guess tomorrow will be another stay at home day... A good day to catch up with house work.

I have been doing alot of tea bag folding The medallions are very pretty and I love the designs that are being created, but again, what do I do with all the finished pieces?

Other than folding paper, I've been trying to needlepoint at night. It seems to put me to sleep. I start with good intensions but end up with very heavy eyelids and I start dozing. Maybe I should do it in the morning instead.

Since Bob decided not to go to Phoenix this year
